2 years ago and started researching hair Transplant Providers and began taking finasteride medication.
I attended several consultations and was offered a variety of treatments.
Vinci wanted to fly me to Spain for a combination FUT/FUE Procedure costing £8000
Zeiring recommended 2 FUT procedures costing £7500 each
Hair repair clinic said that I would require a maximum FUE procedure costing £5000 but that I would need to consult with the surgeon to produce a detailed treatment plan.
Not only were they the cheapest but they were the only provider to offer a consultation with the surgeon who would actually be performing my procedure.
I met with Dr. Hassan Nurein at his surgery at 57 Harley Street.
Straight away the doctor told me that it would be a difficult case but that whatever happened I would have more hair so that there would be some improvement.
The surgeon drew different hairlines and explained to me the different results that i could expect dependent on the shape and height of the hairline we agreed.
I learned that Dr. Nurein performed FUE procedures for 9 different providers including 2 that I had already seen and whom had both quoted over £7000 for a 2500 graft FUE procedure.
I booked my surgery and had my procedure last week.
I travelled to London by train and arrived at 10.00 AM.
We drew the hairline, completed the paperwork and the technicians took me through to theatre and shaved my head.
For the next 4 hours I was face down staring at the surgeon's feet whilst he extracted an impressive 1950 grafts. My surgeon consulted with a colleague during the procedure and they discussed the extractions and adjusted things as the grafts were quite small
There was no pain after the initial anesthetic injections and there is TV and radio to keep you occupied or you can do what I did and stick your own playlist on. It's your special day after all.
After a break for lunch, the surgeon made the incisions and handed me over to the technicians for the planting.
With three technicians implanting the grafts at the same time, everything went very quickly and a couple of hours later I was back in the surgeon's office receiving my aftercare instructions and products.
I am absolutely delighted with the results and with the quality of treatment that i received. It is now 12 days since my procedure and I am healing nicely.
Sharon from Hair Repair Clinic has phoned me almost every day to guide me through the aftercare process and I look forward to posting updated pictures as things progress
